From reading some of the reviews, I decided to give the AlphaDerma skincare line a try.

I've used the samples for a week, but am not noticing any change, besides my skin feelng a little softer to the touch.

I have some big pores and uneven skin from years in the sun. I know I need alphalinoic acides, DMAE and C Ester. Reading the ingredients of the Alphaderma products, those things are in these products, but not very high on the list.

Previously, I had tried samples of Awakening Woman, and the effect was almost instant. The first day, my pores were reduced somewhat and my face firmer, and seemed a little thinner on both sides of my nose. I looked five years younger. However, it smelled so awful, that once my husband walked into the bathroom while I had the DMAE cream open, and started choking. It really smells horrendous.

I contacted the business selling the products, just to make sure my products had not gone bad, and was assured that the ingredients naturally smell bad, and that if I could not smell them, then probably the concentration was not high enough in the products.

I really do wish the Alphaderma will work out, becaust I do not like the bad smell. From those of you who've used it, how long was it before you noticed a change?

Thanks for the help.

It had an instant lifting effect for me, especially around and under the eyes. Really, from the first use.

I would guess that your results will depend on your age/skin condition. I'm 41˝ Wink with minimal sun damage but with 3 quite deep horizontal frown lines on my brow. I also have 2 horizontal lines on my neck that are quite noticable and a line on each side of my jaw. Plus I have the usual under eye creases of someone my age. My skin is quite fair and sensitive but I've not had any major skin issues in the past, such as acne.

I started using AD Skin Prep and ADCE a week ago, noticing results within 24hrs. I also use the Vivier Kine-C and eye serum. I'd been using them around a month before I started with the AD and had already seen quite a bit of an improvement with my general skin condition Very Happy

Anyway 1 week down the line and I can not believe how shallower the brow creases are Shock They have never bothered me as I have a fringe that hides them, but running my finger down my brow I can now only feel one crease, and that's not very obvious. My neck looks fab too, I still have the 2 creases but they are much softer and less noticable. The jaw lines have gone totally

I'm now waiting on my Okusil eye serum to target those lines too, although I'm using a small amount of ADCE under the eyes I want to be careful as that's my most sensitive area.

For me these are now the big HG

My mum has been using these products for months now (a bottle seems to last her ages!) and she's got fantastic results over time. Initially, the results were more related to the softness of her skin and also the appearance in terms of moisture (her skin didn't look leathery anymore). It was over time though that the greatest results came. Keep in mind that she uses ADCE and the skin prep, plus she also uses a 20% vitamin C serum. While I think it's good that ADCE has all these different ingredients in it to make it a x-in-one product, I still feel that vitamin C is very important and 5% C-Ester is not enough. That is my personal opinion though and I am a big fan of vitamin C Smile
